Neurochemistry & Neurotransmission
Neurochemistry deals with the processes happening in nervous system and nerve tissues. One of these processes is Neurotransmission, wherein, the interaction at the synapse occurs with the help of neurotransmitters such as Dopamine, Acetylcholine, Norepinephrine, Glutamate, Serotonin, Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), Endogenous opioids etc. Activity of ion channels assists neurotransmitter receptors to receive the signals. This mechanism is altered by the many drugs, as a treatment process of neurological disorders.
The global sales of drugs to treat progressive dementia with other neurological abnormalities expected to reach $537.2 million in 2012 and $913.7 million by 2017, at a CAGR of 11.2% over the five-year forecast period.
